Burnt. Brown. Pellets.

We understand you are still feeding kibbles. And we have a message to share with you.

Kibbles are convenient. Cheaper. Comes in 12kg big packs that can last for years on the shelves. Many pawrents are still feeding dry food to their pets. Kibbles are typically filled with carbohydrates (sugar), preservatives and processed under super high heat temperatures. That’s why dry pet food are in brown pellet shapes and can sit in big packages on the shelves for years.

The rise of dry pet food.

Pet food was made and sold in metal tin cans in the early 1900s. During World War I, there was rationing for metals and tin cans were reserved for army use, especially as pet food was considered “non-essential” during war time. People also stopped feeding scraps from their dining tables as food became scarce. People then created dry pet food- a cheap, convenient and shelf stable food for pets.

Commercial pet food companies making kibbles

The business of kibble making.

Pet food companies began to produce dry pet food in the shape of pellets, and sometimes in cute shapes like bones and stars too. Besides using more starchy ingredients and less meat proteins, these burnt brown balls went through several rounds of extreme high heat cooking to remove the moisture and kill off the natural goodness of the ingredients.

Emerging pet health issues.

Then came cancer. Liver diseases. Gut problems. And more.
And that’s when pet health issues become prevalent. In the same period when kibbles become popular throughout the world.

Cancer in dogs

More than 1 in 4 dogs will get cancer at some point in their lives.

Ingredients high in carbohydrates

Studies show that diet plays a key role in developing cancer.

In humans, that is (Stewart and Wild 2014). Ingredients marked unhealthy and are ‘cancer-friendly’ include processed meats, excessive salt and high carbohydrate foods (sugar). And there are similarities between dogs and humans when it comes to cancer-causing reasons. By reducing carbohydrates and replacing with high quality proteins in a dog’s diet, the pet tends to do better and prevents cancer growth or occurrence (Ogilvie 1998).

Extrusion makes pet food worse.

By subjecting pet food to extreme high temperatures (300°C and up), commercial pet food companies remove moisture almost completely and makes cost effective kibbles that can stay on the shelves for years. But the high temperatures have already killed off the natural nutrients in the already sparse ingredients and produces carcinogens, which further increases the chances of dogs and cats getting cancer (Dan, Zachary, Jaime and Robert 2012).
